Social media was ablaze after Macklemore won four Grammys he was up for on Sunday while Kendrick Lamar came up completely empty handed in all of the categories he was nominated for including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album & Album of the Year. In a classy move, Macklemore posted a text on his Instagram account that he sent to Kendrick admitting that he “robbed him” at the Grammys and that his album Good Kid, Maad City should have won best rap album.
On his Instagram Macklemore wrote:
My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap album… I’m honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And that’s taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC it’s proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You’re the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That’s what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys
